The Center for Popular Democracy and United N.Y. organized Workers Rising, a conference to celebrate and discuss the exciting new formations and activism of low-wage workers in 2012 to drive that momentum towards more victories in 2013. In 2012, a wave of worker organizing rose across low-wage industries in NYC and across the nation, propelled by workersâ anger at poverty wages and intolerable working conditions. Supported by community, faith-based groups, unions, and elected officials, these workers participated in nationwide protests at Wal-Mart, led the first coordinated strikes in the history of Americaâs fast food industry, unionized at car washes and groceries, and took on major N.Y.C. retailers efforts to offer only part-time work.
